[h2] Medical Marijuana: Is Pain Relief Worth The Risk?[/h2]
Retirement TV recently released this special report which showcases testimonies from a variety of people on opposing sides of the medical marijuana debate including MM users and a member from the Office of Drug National Drug Control Policy.
It's amazing that with so many vocal supporters of MM use that Congress and the White House still won't open up the dialogue beyond the usual nay saying. Some would argue that our government is in concert with large pharmaceutical companies that provide varying forms of pain relief - with profits growing at record rates as our population grows older and lives longer.
My view of it has always been this: research MM usage fairly and without the usual bias of it being an illicit street drug. Find out what the fuss truly is on the field level and not make it an issue of morality or safety. As you'll see in the video piece, one man who doesn't live in a compassionate state has to buy his marijuana off the street - yet he willingly takes that risk of freedom for the relief. Yes, once could argue that he's addicted but what would you do if you knew something would ease your pain but it wasn't legally available? What steps would you take?
